Tipped Workers Face Long Odds in Minimum Wage Fight (Podcast)

March 9, 2021, 9:32 PM

This week’s episode of our new weekly legal podcast, On The Merits, explores the push to increase the minimum wage for tipped workers. The hourly wage for tipped workers, $2.13, hasn’t gone up in decades and is $5.12 lower than for non-tipped workers. (3:01)

We also get a lesson in negligence while learning about a casino pool party accident that led to an embarrassing benchslap. (12:14)
